We are trying to raise enough money to replace Izzy's iPad and all of the communication apps that we had purchased to help him speak.

Izzy has come a long way since he was born at 1 pound 5 ounces, 5 years ago. Due to his extreme prematurity, he still has quite a bit of catching up to do. Boy, is he doing it! He now makes eye contact, he can follow simple tasks, and he is beginning to ask for help, but this is where the iPad comes in.
Two weeks ago, the iPad went for a swim in the tub. I tried everything to revive it, even submerged it in a bag if rice for a week, but alas it was out to pasture. The iPad had been loaded with communication apps, speech therapy apps, and organizational apps, all of which were used during the school day, and at home to help him express himself.
Currently, we have exhausted all of the back up electronic learning systems, and he can really only focus on flash cards for so long, until his brother steals them away! He walks around from room to room everyday, asking for his iPad, but he doesn't understand that we no longer have it :(

So if you have anything that you can donate, pennies even, we would really appreciate it. We would love to replace this for him by Christmas. Santa would be a ROCKSTAR that day!

Thank you for reading, and be blessed.
